Ok im going to post up a journal here guys. I hope you dont mind. The point of this journal is for me to grow in IM over my Uni life (which finishes roughly this time next yr ) . I have never started a proper journal b4 so bear with me. I started IM in Feb by TOTAL mistake and 6 months later its led me to earning a couple hundred online (not much but enough to know it works). I actually stopped at the beginning of May because of exams which were in june...(lesson learnt- study throughout the semester and not the month b4!!). SO im on holidays now and id like to get into it! So my goal is to make 500 by the end of July can i do it? I believe i can! Actually I have confidence in my self that i can make more because i want this so badly especially with my family history (not going into detail but you guys get the point). I plan to achieve this goal with article marketing (using clickbank products). I was going to go to other affiliate sites but everyone says that clickbank is the best place to start....so i would like to earn a good income from there b4 i go anywhere else. So far out of 6 months with IM my strength is that i can pump out articles. At first it took me ages but now i can pump out maybe 2-4 in 1 hr if im determined. Not much strengths but I think i got knowledge on the way! How do i plan to get to 500 by July? So far what i have thought is: -Find 3-5 niches -within each find 5-10 keywords each keyword consisting of : . "true comp" < 10k maybe < 20k (you guys help me out here) . without quotes <500k or <1mill (again help me out) . Searched over 300 times a month -Each niche i will either ATTEMPT to build a landing page with Dreamweaver Or i will forward a domain name to the sales page. - Backlink my articles using angelas packets...but im not sure about that.. if some one can clarify this question for me --> So many people use her packets will google do something about this? Or am i able to use them without getting penalized? - Thinking of signing up to linkjuice but not sure. I DONT know how to use a blog or wordpress AND i dont no the point of it...haha so if someone could help me out there or point me to a useful guide then that would be great! My goal overall from 28/06/09 to 28/06/10 i would like to achieve are: - 1k a week -able to build websites - able to do PPC - Pro at SEO Sorry for the long post LOL but id thought id make a lasting first impression for you guys and let you know i dont plan to drop this journal anytime soon. Cheers Tssen P.S I would love help on the way! P.S.S If anyone wants to join me on my journey then your definitely welcomed to.
